, mccain, graham and ayotte. >> don't we all have the responsibility before we go out and talk to the american people on all five sunday morning shows for verifying those facts are true? >> the most basic information about what happened on the night of the attack, and what survivors had to say after the attack is not being provided and we'll talk more about that. bill: so you wonder then whether or not they will get the answers they're looking for. whether or not some of these questions will lead to even more questions. they will sit down in about 20 minutes from now. kelly wright is live in washington there. kelly, you're covering this morning. what is the expectation from this meeting on the hill? >> reporter: the expectations bill, they will get down to the bottom of this. at least that's what they will try to do. that is the most fundamental thing to these republican senators. they want to find out exactly what susan rice knew, before, during and after that attack. she has emerged, by the way as a frontrunner and possibly being nominated for secretary of state. if so, she w
of hamas through egypt, from senatorred john mccain and graham and others, asking him to urge the stop of the spread of weapons to sinai which is a threat to egypt's national security and sovereignty. a couple days ago senator graham, one of the three senators, threatened president morsi and said unless you take a month positive role here in this exploding situation in the middle east, republicans in congress will cut off united states aid to egypt and the president morsi responded by helping to broker this cease-fire, and now we will see how he will respond to some more of these threats. it is clear that washington, dc is watching the performance of the egyptian president very closely. >>trace: and that was ed henry on the north lawn. and now, a former senior director for middle east affairs at the national security council and currently the managing director of the washington institute. we sometimes are skeptical, but, secretary of state, hillary clinton flies in, egypt signs on and israel signs off, and we have peace. things in the middle do not seem to work that smooth. your take?
reaction from one of her biggest critics, south carolina senator lindsey graham, who will join us live. >> here's what's important, the story that susan rice told america and president obama himself told america about benghazi was that it was a result of a spontaneous event. the difference between spontaneous and preplanned is significant. patti ann: a fox news alert, walking out on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. picket lines greeting black friday shoppers at the nation's largest retailer. a brand new hour of "america's newsroom", i'm patti ann brown. gregg: and i'm gregg jarrett in for bill hemmer. union workers protesting what they call unfair working conditions and demanding better benefits and pay. james rosen is live at the protest in landover hills, maryland. james? >> reporter: gregg and patti ann, good morning. this black friday confrontation here at wal-mart unfolded with a lot of sound and fury, a lot of evident passion, a bit of tension, but thankfully, no violence and it should be said no discernible disruption to commerce. the reverend dr. edwin l. jones, a
back to 1986. first it was saxby chambliss. now south carolina republican senator lindsey graham. take a listen. >> when you're $16 trillion in debt, the only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid the coming grief, and republicans, republicans should put revenue on the table, we're this far in debt, we don't generate enough revenue. i want to buy down debt and cut rates to create jobs. but i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country, only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> and i think that's important what he said there. only if democrats will do entitlements, as some democrats have pushed back on that. they do not think that that should be on the table. as f americans, they believe that there should be a balance between spending cuts and tax increases. about 67%, according to a new cnn/orc poll say that 29% say only spending cuts. and who will get the blame if we don't reach some kind of agreement here? gop clearly gets the brunt of the blame here. 45% say the gop, 34% say president obama, 15% say both. now as congress returns here
cain and lindsey graham, two foreign policy leaders have slammed rice for her initial comments about the source of the libya attacks with mccain threatening to filibuster if he's nominated. many other republicans have joined in. 97 members of the house sent the president a letter monday opposing rice. now president obama is not backing down. the white house has confirmed it's still considering promoting rice and last week the president said if mccain and graham want to go after someone, they should go after him. rice was not exactly a household name during obama's first term. but all this heat from the political players is drawing some media fire. "the new york times" maureen dowd has knocked rice as an unsavvy washington player. while the "times" editorial page came out with an endorsing of the ambassador announcing it's time to leave rice alone. jonathan capehart one of the interesting things about this debate there's a lot of talk about what susan rice has done, specifically about libya, and then there's sort of this vague idea that republicans can stop the president no matter what. take a l
englander. he died today, the new hampshire republican was best known for graham rudman, the act that was meant to force the feds to balance the budget. he was a korean war veteran, a bronze star recipient who years later said, once you've seen combat not much else in life will intimidate you. and in his life, not much else did. he was a former boxer, a syracuse grad, a lawyer, he champion justice suitor for the supreme court and served on a panel that all but predicted a 9/11 style attack earlier. he was a fierce critic of the direction the gop has taken in recent years. warren rudman was 82 years old. >>> there's an intriguing headline out of hollywood. the son of the founder of the trade paper "the hollywood reporter" is apologizing for what he's calling hollywood's holocaust, the black list that helped destroy many careers in the '40s and '50s, accusing those on the list of being communist simm pathi izizers ban the day. his father may have been motivated by revenge after his plans to build his own movie studio failed and he turned on the same industry he covered. >>> when we
to fulfill a constructive role now and in the future. >> last weekend, republican senator lindsey graham threatened to cut off the billion dollars in u.s. aid unless morsi helped stop the violence. today, graham joins senators mccain and kelly ayotte in going further. saying we urge president morsi to act swiftly to stop the smuggling of weapons to extremists in gaza and sinai. which is a threat to egypt's own sovereignty, stability and national security. now two months after the president stopped short of calling egypt an ally, top officials here say they believe so far morsi shown himself to be someone they can do business with. they realize inside the white house the cease-fire may not hold. they may need morsi's help again very soon. shannon? >> shannon: much more with the panel coming up. ed, thank you. those braving the shopping odyssey as black friday may have more crazy to deal with than usual because the labor organizers pick that day to make a point in front of the largest possible audience. chief washington correspondent james rosen explains. >> black friday, a third of americ
loopholes. >> lindsey graham is okay with new revenue and willing to cap deductions to get it, but only if democrats agree to reform entitlements like social security and medicare. >> i don't expect the democrats to go for premium ouci do expect them to adjust these entitlement programs before they bankrupt the company. some entilement reform is okay with illinois democratic senator dig durbin, but thinks that social security should be left alone. >> social security does not add one penny to our debt. not a penny. it's a separate funded operation and we can do things and i believe we should, smaller things played out long-term that give it solvency. >> and congressman peter king says nobody will get all they want, but if president reagan and speaker o'neill could get a deal, president obama and speaker boehner should as well. >> harris: let's hope that's true. thank you. right now, a child missing, city on edge and volunteers going door-to-door to try to find young dylan. also, no longer a mysteries, but an official cause. we now know why a strip club blew up and more than 40 buildings
. senators john mccain, lindsey graham and kelly ayotte say they're even more troubled now after meeting with ambassador rice. the attack on libya on september 11 killed the u.s. ambassador, cries stevens and three other americans. five days later, ambassador rice went on the sunday talk shows and said u.s. officials believed it was a spontaneous reaction to protest over an anti-islam video. not a preplanned terrorist attack. first the controversy was over whether the white house made the change in the talking points. but that's past because intelligence officials say they gave ambassador rice those talking points. today senator graham called the information disconnected from reality. >> not only is the information bad and i'm more convinced than ever that it was bad, it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama three weeks before an election. >> shepard: rice said while we wish we had had perfect information, just days after the terrorist attack, as is often the case, the intelligence assessment has evolved. neither i nor anyone else in the
cain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayotte criticized explanations rice given in the past and obviously today and on the attack in benghazi the meeting doesn't appear to help smooth away for rice's widely anticipated nomination as secretary of state. here is senator ayotte moments ago ago. >> when you have a position where your ambassador to the united nations you go well beyond unclassified talking points in your daily preparations and responsibilities for that job and that is troubling to me. jenna: kelly wright, live in washington with more. kelly, the three senators just held the news briefing which we played a little bit from kelly ayotte. tell us generally what was their response? what sort of reaction they had to what they heard inside that closed-door meeting? >> reporter: let's stay on focus on that because that is really telling. each senator saw the tone being stunned by the information they heard in this closed-door meeting with u.n. ambassador susan rice. they are significantly troubled they say, more than that ever, which means there are more questions than answers as a result o
: senator graham says age adjustment and means testing for medicare and social security is a reasonable thing. but illinois democratic senator dick durbin doesn't want to touch social security. he thinks the new revenue should come from an increase on the tax rates of top earners, which is currently 35%. >> let the rates go up to 39. let us also take a look at the deductions. let's make sure that revenue is an integral part of deficit reduction. from my side of the table, bring entitlement reform into the conversation. social security, set aside, doesn't add to the deficit. when it comes to medicare and medicaid, protect the integrity of the program, but give it solvency for more and more years. >> reporter: a source with engine of knowledge -- with knowledge of the negotiation says there is no date set in stone for the next meeting among the principle negotiate othe timing will depend on the progress of staff member, in the next few days. but we should not be surprised if they get together, sthiem week. shannon. >> shannon: we wish them much luck. thank you. our worst-case scenario, th
is not the problem. the the problem is the president of united states. >> gregg: republican senator lindsay graham joined him calling for answers. he also said ambassador rice deserves another chance to defend herself. you can watch the exclusive interview beginning tonight at 6:00 p.m. eastern only on the fox news channel. >> heather: to another developing situation in the mideast. cease-fire could be jeopardized just days after it was put in place. israel reported that it has spotted an iranian ship bound for gaza. a threat that an israeli source would end the cease-fire deal. david lee miller has more from jerusalem. >> reporter: new iranian weapons could be on their way to to gaza for use by militants. an israeli spy satellite spotted cargo being loaded on a ship including rockets. the israeli military is believed to have destroyed much of the stockpiles in gaza during the conflict. the report cites israeli intelligence sources says the weapons shipment will be escorted by an iranian warship. israel says it will destroy any weapons headed to gaza and the cargo ship may contain longer range bal
're not victims any more for the first time ever. >> reporter: yousef graham is a farmer who told us he was wounded in an israeli air strike now he said he supports hamas. his nephew told us israelis don't care if they hit civilians. that growing anger is a problem that could outlast any truce that diplomats might patch together. >> pelley: charlie d'agata is in gaza city tonight. charlie, simply put, what is it like to be a citizen of gaza today? >> reporter: quite frankly, scott, it's been a terrifying day and into the evening. the streets are empty and there's good reason: israeli warships have been pounding gaza for most of the evening, dozens of rounds have been fire into the gaza strip. israeli tanks have opened fire in the south. we've had fighter jets flying overhead on these bombing runs. there have been huge explosions here. some in residential neighborhoods that we passed on the way here. at the same time, we have seen and heard hamas firing rockets back into israel. so it's been so unpredictable and there has definitely been an uptick in the violence and fighting here in gaz
norquist said as long as you don't raise tax rates that is okay. and lindsay graham on that. >> i agree we shouldn't raise rates but i think grover is wrong to cap and buy down debt. what do you do with the money and i will violate the pledge for the good of the country only if the democrats do entitlement reform. >> gretchen: i think the pledge thing is good and bad. if you are a republican and believe that raising taxes is the wrong they think that and fine. but ham stringing politicians and many people lost election over there and turns out times change. peter king is also saying he's going to go against the pledge who agreed to it years and years and his reasoning that times have changed. here is the caviat . you are a republican and don't want to raise taxes and willing to compromise a bit, the democrats have to compromise with entitlement spending there. is a way here to find common ground and get away from the all or nothing pledges that the american public many of them were upset about the grid lock. >> brian: it is all symbolic. that brings 80 billion a year and would pay ian volv
if obama goes forward and decides to nominate rice. >> there is a john mccain and lindsay graham, they have threatened to block her possible nomination. mccain called her comments not very bright. as result he and others are accused of being racist. is questioning her qualifications specifically following her benghazi statements, do you think that is racist? >> democrats have been certainly suggesting that. of course republicans say that is ridiculous. you look at graham and mccain who have been constant critics of the obama administration but you look at center, susan collins who has strongly supported rice in her lowell as u.n. ambassador praised her at her initial confirmation hearing. collins is saying that rice has to answer the question or she won't vote for her. that is major problem for the administration. i think it's a good move by rice she is trying to dial it down. she is willing to meet mccain. the temperature has to come down a little bit in order for her to possibly be nominated. if at this level it will be tough. >> heather: should she still be nominated? >> i think it will
senator lindsey graham says he may break his pledge to anti-tax lobbyist grove norquist. >> i'm willing to generate revenue. we're below historic advantages. i will not raise tax rates. i will cap deductions and long story short for the good of the country only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> all the president that i have served with including reagan, clinton and the first george bush moved away from the position of no additional tax. >> they all added revenues to deficit reduction. >> without a bipartisan plan the bush-era tax cuts are expected to retire jarn 1st and spending cuts may kick in as well. they anticipate a second face- to-face meeting with president obama as soon as this week. >>> also in washington republican senator john mccain backed off from fiery criticism of un un ambassador susan rice about the attack in libya. >> i think she deserved the ability to explain herself and her position as she said, but she is not the problem. the prose problem is that the president of the united states, who in a debate with mitt romney said that he had said it was a terr

forward three years in 2005 when she was up to be secretary of state, it was lindsey graham who was furious that the democrats were pushing back. it was senator john mccain who were furious that the democrats were pushing back on condoleezza rice to be secretary of state. she was wrong on weapons of mass destruction. how is this different? >> the difference is the scrutiny provided by our free press in this country. condoleezza rice was exposed to withering criticism by the press. i don't see that happening now. maybe i've missed something in the talking points, but i don't see that happening. >> so, let me -- >> the ambassador of the united nations should not have been the person on the sunday shows. >> so you're confusing me there for a moment. when you say the scrutiny on the press -- are you saying five days after comments of weapons of mass destruction, you feel like the media was picking apart condoleezza rice? i don't think that's true, sir. most people say that's not the case. it took a long time. i'm talking about three years before she was up for secretary of state. if
with his shadow, lindsey graham, and their new third amigo, new hampshire senator kelly ayotte, they released a joint statement today, praising the cease-fire declaration, but then adding were for good measure, quote, what happens in the middle east will impact america's vital national security interests for the foreseeable future and stronger, smarter american leadership is desperately needed. smarter leadership! take it from john mccain. remember, john mccain's big idea on foreign policy at the moment is that we should not have a secretary of state at all right now. john mccain suggesting that he will personally block anybody from being confirmed as secretary of state in the second term of the obama administration, because according to john mccain, u.n. ambassador susan rice, who's a likely candidate for secretary of state, she once said something wrong on the sunday shows. in the days after the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, back in september, susan rice went on the sunday shows and gave the administration's intelligence agency-approved talking points, explaining
thing. senator mccain and senator graham certainly have points they'll discus during the nomination process. susan rice is not the nominee to be the next united states secretary of state. and when that process happens, i think the senate will do its job through the constitution and vet that candidate, and that's what they do. >> but this is all about the sunday talk shows she did when she talked about benghazi. "the new york times" reports that second toir clinton was originally asked by the white house to talk about it but frankly was exhausted after a very busy week and said susan rice filled in, she recruited the talking points that were given. are republicans making her a scapegoat? >> i think they want to get to the truth. the one thing i applaud the administration on is they're doing investigations, they want to get to the truth. i think the republicans in the senate are doing their job, too. they want the know the truth. when did the administration know exactly what that was. i think when you trot out something like this was because of a videotape, it raises questions. i thin
as state, you have serious republicans in the u.s. senate like senator mccain and senator graham saying look we need a select committee along the lines of the watergate special committees, aeu to get answers here. we are still not clear. we are ten weeks later. we are still getting the runaway from the very highest officials in the administration. the only way we'll get answers is to have a bi-partisan and bicameral investigation that involves both houses. the senate and the house of representatives. ainsley: the senate just responded don't go after susan rice, go after me. why don't you go after me. what do you make of his timing about all this. >> it's very clear, he's saying i want to nominate susan rice. if you want to filibuster you take me on. i think the president will play chicken with senator graham and senator mccain. there are clearly enough democratic votes in the senate about 55, i think she is confirmable. the question its will there be a filibuster and my guess is ultimately there will not. i think the president will get the secretary of state he wants. that will be regre
that senator mccain and lindsey graham are hypocritically going after her. >> i don't disagree with mark on this level. susan rice was brought in as a pawn. i think that when you are talking about an attack on an ambassador and you have a c can ia annex that came under fire and you have navy seals and airmen that end up dying and you have questions of military strategy and state department issues and so forth, i don't know where the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. even fits that equation. but let me quickly defend the honor of an indent person that mark just slandered. condoleezza rise did not present any information before the body of the u.n. that was done by general colin foul when he was -- r -- colin powell when he was secretary of state. >> you could say she was a pawn. but she has an impeccable record at the u.n. >> she gave false information to five national talk shows. >> she has some of the most stringent sanctions against north korea, iran and the most international defense our ally israel has drummed up in wong support for america's fight against terrorism. >> she gave provable f
mccain and lindsey graham in the senate, and you have folks in the house who -- which is run by republicans -- who want more answers. it's really going to be almost a political fight as to how far we go with in the benghazi investigation, because it's very clearly most democrats with the exception of dianne feinstein from california who runs the intelligence committee in the senate, most of them are ready to push this thing aside and get on to other things in congress. rick: what if it was spin? i've heard democrats say even if the administration was trying to put a positive spin on a story that would look bad for them leading up to an election day, how is this any different from spinning jobless numbers, from spinning the health care debate? leading up to an election, both sides were doing so much spinning. >> i think spinning and national security are, a whole other issue. four dead americans, the first ambassador killed in three decades, and what really looks less like spin and almost in the eyes of some republicans and only critics a cover-up, a cover-up of incompetence a
